Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
We are more than excited to add a new tool to our practice, the Lightforce Class IV deep tissue laser. It is the most powerful deep tissue laser out there, administering up to 25 watts of power! The results in the 2 weeks that we have had it are very impressive. What does a deep tissue laser do? Well for starters it can relieve pain and inflammation associated with sprains/strains, low back pain, shoulder and knee pain, sports injuries, neck pain, disc issues, sciatica, tendinitis, foot and ankle conditions, carpel tunnel, plantar fasciitis, and much more! How does it work? Laser therapy helps to facilitate the mitochondrial production of ATP, which provides injured cells with the energy needed for the healing process without increasing free radicals. Through photobiomodulation, the laser is able to increase microcirculation in the tissues, increase tissue oxygenation (meaning more oxygen is being released from the blood stream) and improve energy production in damaged cells by stimulating enzymes in the mitochondria to utilize oxygen more efficiently. What does all that mean? Let's just put it this way, the deep tissue laser therapy is able to go deep into the tissues and work on the cellular level to help speed up the healing process. It has become very popular in the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and Olympic teams as well. Below are 2 articles on the use of the deep tissue laser therapy from Duke and LSU athletics and how it has been beneficial for their athletes.
